Hey, I'm new to the Gluten Free living style. Recently I feel like I've been feeling like I need to get sick. So I was just wondering if anyone else feels like they are going to get sick/gag? Thanks for your help!

How long have you been on the diet? What are you eating? Do you keep a food diary (this helps keep track of what you eat in case there is something causing you issues)?

For a long while I used to get that sick feeling with any trace of cc. Then I used to get it when taking my supplements before bed. You know, the sweating feeling, the gagging, retching, too much saliva stuff. It seems to have gone away now.

Shadowicewolf I've probably been on the diet for 4 months now. I'm trying to eat a lot of meat and a lot of fresh fruits and veggies.

Mushroom. Thanks for the help

You're meat might be whats causing you to have those symptoms. I know it took me FOREVER to finally find chicken that would not make me sick.

As time goes by, you will find out what your sensitivity to gluten really is. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm. Most celiacs can tolerate that amount. Some can not. They go totally non packaged food. Be patient in healing.

Reba, what kind of music do you like? and welcome to the forum.

. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm.


In the US, there is no legal meaning for "Gluten Free". It can mean no gluten ingredients. It can mean the company tests for gluten. Some use tests as low as 5ppm. You would need to check the company's website or email or call them to find out for certain.

Even if a product is tested with a 20 ppm test, testing negative does not mean it has 19 ppm. It just means it has less than 20 ppm. It could have 0 or 2 ppm.

Thanks for expanding the meaning.

So, make sure you are getting your daily carbs in there as well.  If your carb intake gets too low, your body will let you know it.  I accidentally did this when I first went gluten-free and I felt very off and anxious.  No need to camp out on carbs but if you're having breakfast--a slice of gluten-free toast, with lunch try some "Nut-Thins" chips, and it may just help.

 

Your diagnosis is enough to make you feel sick by itself!  It's a lot to digest.  Take a deep breath, get that balanced gluten-free diet in, take it a day at a time and the habit will form before you know it and it will all become second hand...

 

As for alternative music...  I can't say much because thats what I listen too.  ALT Nation on Sirius rocks.

I know what you mean. I've been gluten free for a month now and I'm still having lots of acid/burps/nausea. Hoping that will go away with time. Interesting about the carbs too...I may try to add more to my diet and see what happens.

I love country by the way :)
